#NeverTrump Jeff Flake Considers Independent Run in AZ to Screw Republicans

#NeverTump RINO Jeff Flake May Not Be Quite Done Yet– First he wants to ensure a Democrat Wins in Arizona

NeverTrumpers NEVER go away quietly.

RINO #NeverTrump Senator Jeff Flake announced last Tuesday he will not seek reelection in Arizona.

Jeff Flakewas down by 26 points in a PRIMARY race in Arizona and had an approval rating of 18% in his home state.

Then Tuesday he took to the Senate floor to audition for a future gig on MSNBC.

The outspoken #NeverTrumper trashed the Republican president and Republican voters in a 17 minute speech.
Of course, liberals loved it.

Now Flake may run as an independent candidate in Arizona.
So he can screw Republicans.

Via US News and World Report:

Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona has considered running for his seat as an independent and given his blessing to an outside organization to conduct polling to explore the possibility, a source familiar with his thinking tells U.S. News.

Flake announced last Tuesday he would not seek re-election to a second Senate term next year in light of his dire chances of winning a Republican primary and his frustration with the tenure of President Donald Trump. Polling showed him trailing his insurgent challenger, Kelli Ward, by double digits.

But The Centrist Project, a group created to recruit independent candidates, approached Flake about running outside the dominant two-party system during a meeting on Friday. The senator signaled he was open to the possibility and interested in what polling would show, according to the source.

A spokesperson for Flake did not respond to an inquiry. After initial publication of this story, the senator tweeted that an independent run is “not gonna happen.”
